The worldwide Fair Data Principles are a guide to all researchers for improving the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reuse of research data for both humans and machines.

FAIR Data does not equal to Open Data. The FAIR data guidelines provide a framework for researchers when developing a data management plan ensuring their research data is managed and correctly stored. Major funding bodies encourage and promote FAIR data to maximise the integrity and impact of their research investment. These principles are supported by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) - a partnership between Monash University, Australian National University, the CSIRO and the Australian Government.
